    More about SIZE

Integral SIZE is a decentralized exchange built for large trades of ERC-20 tokens. It allows trades to be executed at 30-minute TWAP with zero price impact. We were quoted in an interesting piece by TechCrunch recently regarding DeFi growth and TVL.

Key features:

  • For Traders: zero price impact of large trades (including less liquid tokens).
  • For LPs: passive accrual of yield while achieving mean zero IL.
  • Rely on an external price oracle (such as Uniswap v2 and SushiSwap) for price discovery over time.
